Authorities claim they knew Mount was driving without a valid license.
Shortly after police attempted to stop the vehicle, Mount bolted from the car and headed into a wooded area off of Prather Ave, according to police.
Mount was charged with second-degree obstructing governmental administration, third degree aggravated unlicensed operation, reckless driving, and several traffic tickets.
He was arraigned in Jamestown City Court and remanded to Chautauqua County Jail with bail.
